Unranked Parkville upset No. 11 Dulaney, 15-12, in a Class 3A-4A South girls lacrosse region semifinal yesterday. It was the Knights' first win over their Cockeysville opponent since Nancy Gross took over as coach of the team eight years ago.
Junior Lisa Tsimbidis scored eight goals for host Parkville, two in the last 21 seconds to ice the win.
"Everyone on the team had a hand in the win," said Gross. "I don't think I breathed until it was over."
Dulaney (11-2) took a 2-0 lead, and the Knights (12-3) didn't score until 17: 07, on the first of two goals by Kristen Habicht.
The Knights took the lead at 3-2 on Tsimbidis' second goal at 13: 04 and never trailed again.
Marlena Wittelsberger, Shannon Galup and Camile Fesche all scored three goals for Dulaney.
Goalie Amanda Karbowniczek made 23 saves for the Knights, who play host to Kenwood at 3: 45 p.m. today for the regional championship.
